Yeni

OPENED 150 DAYS AGO

Top Turkish chef Civan Er brings his famed Istanbul restaurant Yeni to Soho.

Known for marrying traditional Turkish cuisine with local ingredients, Istanbul-born restaurant Yeni Lokanta has received several awards since opening in 2013. While Soho sees a shorter name above the door, Yeni, everything on the menu is much like the original.

The Spot:

Yeni celebrates Istanbul’s diverse dishes, from street food snacks of the city’s bustling markets to inventive, vegetable-driven creations and a variety of sophisticated fish and meat-focused plates. Even the space is likely to transport you to Istanbul, fitted with floral tiles on the wall, tile-topped tables and little lanterns (reminiscent of the old market town).

The Food:

Chef Er has brought his signature style to Soho, serving dishes such as aubergine-filled manti with goats’ yogurt, sausages accompanied by borlotti bean purée, and bass with raki and feta. Heartier plates include Yeni’s famous oven-roasted ribs (served on sourdough with sour cherries) and interesting-sounding salty fingers made with octopus. Dessert might just be the best part, with options including kadajifi-covered custard fritters and salted caramel panna cotta with pumpkin.

The Drinks:

Cocktails incorporate traditional ingredients, including isot pepper, mahalep cherry and of course, raki.

The Damage:

Small plates are priced at around £10; large plates are £25.

In a Nutshell:

When an award-winning Turkish chef brings an Istanbul institution to London, you run as fast as you can – Yeni in Soho is likely to become just as popular as the original.
